Yes! Finally!! Is this why there doesn't seem to be a fall NYC meet?
I went to see Periphery last week but left more impressed by Sikth. Crazy energy! Periphery was kind of a letdown after that.      
Anyone get a chance to try the new Elear with some metal? Good dynamic punch without the treble etch of some summit-fi gear seems right up my alley. However, I am a bit concerned by reports of the Elear giving people headaches.
 Thanks for the info! I'd put my knowledge level at just enough to be dangerous.
Specs list this at 80ohms but looking at the innerfidelity measurements I see that the impedance spikes up to 300-325(!!) in the bass.  This could explain the differing opinions regarding bass response. A phone or small portable amp won't give you the bass as intended.
A friend of mine knows I'm in to audio and every time he comes over he tells me how great my stereo setup sounds. One day he asked me for advice about getting some ht stuff for his new apartment. We had emails back and forth back and forth. I'd send him some options, he would ask a couple questions, and then send me links to products I hadn't suggested, all of which "look good." He sent me links to all kinds of random amazon crap with no reviews, products with horrible...
Anyone compare these to the good old SE535?
 You mention that the XR can sound a bit veiled with multiple instruments. Your comment reminded me of some Westones (W40?) I heard recently that sounded great with more simple one-line kind of music, but layered tracks from orchestral to progressive rock/metal sounded quite muddy and slow. Is that what we're talking about on some level here? 
In laws decided to visit this weekend (weekend of the meet), even though we told them it wasn't a good time. Sigh.
Opeth removed Blackwater Park, Damnation, and Lamentations from Spotify. They are my favorite Opeth albums!! Isn't Blackwater Park their most popular album? Why would they remove their best release?
